PANAMA CITY, Fla., March 26, 2008 – Pier Park, Panama City’s new open-air regional lifestyle center, is featured on the cover of the new AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory for Panama City. The Humane Society of Bay County will be featured on the AT&T Real Yellow Pages Companion directory, which is the smaller, more portable version of the traditional directory.
More than 309,000 copies of the AT&T Real Yellow Pages and Companion have been produced for distribution this year. Delivery starts this week and lasts approximately four weeks. The directory also will be available to new residents and businesses throughout the year.
“We are pleased to feature Pier Park and The Humane Society of Bay County on the cover of our new AT&T Real Yellow Pages directories,” said Barb Orton, AT&T Real Yellow Pages regional sales manager. “We’re always working to make our directories an even greater value to our customers by tailoring the contents and services offered in them to meet the needs of our customers. The AT&T Real Yellow Pages and Companion directories are directories you can count as your complete source of community information. ”
Pier Park is a unique open-air regional retail environment providing shopping, entertainment, tourist attractions, and dining experiences for the Panama City market and the entire Emerald Coast. Located on Front Beach Road in the heart of Panama City Beach, Pier Park is ideally located to serve the area’s growing residential community, exploding condo market, and over 7 million tourists that visit each year. Pier Park is approximately 1.1 million square feet.
“We are thrilled that Pier Park will be represented on the new directories,” said Felicia Robinson Cook, Director of Mall Marketing, Pier Park. “This means that, for the next year, the Pier Park will be front and center anytime someone picks up an AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory. We hope the cover will remind residents and visitors of this unique spot for shopping, entertainment, dining and more right here in Panama City.”

“We’re proud The Humane Society of Bay County will be featured on so many Companion directories this year,” said Mary Sanger, Bay County Humane Society Executive Director. “It is our hope that area residents will turn to us when looking for a new companion animal as this supports our mission of placing every animal we accept into a loving, lifetime home.”
